Bryan Gil replaces injured Marcos Llorente in Spain squad
Bryan Gil has replaced Marcos Llorente in Spain’s squad for the Nations League semi-final against Italy.
Atletico Madrid announced on Sunday that midfielder Llorente suffered a right thigh injury in their 2-0 LaLiga win over Barcelona on Saturday.
It is not clear how long he will be sidelined for but Llorente will play no part as Spain aim to get some small measure of revenge over European champions Italy, who beat them on penalties in the semi-finals of Euro 2020.
Instead, Tottenham winger Bryan will potentially get the chance to feature at San Siro on Wednesday.
Bryan has already won six caps for Spain during his international career and comes into Luis Enrique’s squad despite a low-key start to his Spurs career.
Since joining Tottenham from Sevilla in July, Bryan has made only eight appearances in all competitions.
Three of those have come in the Premier League and four in the Europa Conference League with the other in the EFL Cup.
Bryan has yet to find the net for Spurs and has two chances created to his name.
